Explore the myriad of the Pakleni Islands, a divine collections in front of Hvar, whose pine trees provide shade to numerous idyllic and empty coves. There is time to swim, snorkel, chill.. Kayak slowly back to Hvar in the early afternoon.
The length of the route is 3-5 Nm, with one beach stop - depending on weather conditions and pace of the group. We head southeast from Hvar, following the coast, until we reach a secluded beach. If the weather permits we would sea kayak outside of the channel to the south side of the islands, experiencing the open sea and unlimited views over the horizon. In the case of south winds, we would need to stay within the channel exploring the north side of the islands, protected from the winds.
The tour starts from Krizna luka beach, just 7min walk from the city center. As you arrive at the beach our guide(s) will prepare sea kayaks for you (double or single). You will get some dry bags to store your personal items. Before we start the tour, we would need to adjust sea kayak steering system for each kayak, according to your height, so we would be sure that you will feel comfortable in the kayak once we set off to the sea. Once the gear is set (PFDs, dry bags, paddles), we will have a short safety talk and introduction to basic sea kayaking techniques.
Once we set off to the sea, usually it takes about 30 to 45 min to cross the channel and to reach Pakleni islands and about 45 min to 1h before we exit to our first beach. While we paddle, if weather permits, we will stop in several occasions - floating in our kayaks to relax, enjoying views and hearing some explanations about our surroundings from your guide(s) or taking pictures.
While on the beach, enjoy your time swimming, relaxing or simply grab mask and snorkel and explore on your own. There will be an opportunity to have a coffee, refreshing drink or light meal at one of the beach bars during the break.
